Arrow movement problem

Pavilion 590
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Whenever I use the arrow keys my cursor moves two spaces.  This is really annoying and I've tried looking for help elsewhere. It is just my local PC.  If I'm connected to remote desktop, this doesn't happen.

Step 1: Click the bottom-left Start button to open the Start Menu, type control panel in the search box and select Control Panel in the results.

Step 2: Select Ease of Access.

Step 3: Click Change how your mouse works.

Step 4: In the window titled Make the mouse easier to use, select Turn on Mouse Keys and tap OK.

 

Let me know how that pans out,

Try using a different mouse and check if it works fine.

 

Update the BIOS and CHIP Set using this link: https://support.hp.com/us-en/drivers

 

Uninstall and reinstall the drivers for your mouse: 

 

Go to the Device Manager and select your mouse. Uninstall it and then restart your computer. During restart, your mouse driver will automatically be reinstalled. 

 

· 1.   Click on Start and type ‘Device Manager’. 

· 2.   Click Device Manager. 

· 3.   Click + sign next to Mouse. 

· 4.   Right-click on mouse entry and choose "uninstall". 

· 5.   Restart your computer. 

 

Keep me posted, how it goes!

That was several suggestions so I want to clarify that updating the BIOS was the solution. 

 

Changing the mouse and drivers did not do anything.

 

Thank you so much.  I feel relieved.

My PC didn't stay fixed.  I don't know what to do about the arrow movement issue.
